”We have sprayed fertilizers in 4,000 acre farm land spread in Khargone, Raisen, Shajapur, Rajgarh, Guna and Gwalior districts with the help of a drone to do a business of Rs 12.5 lakh,” Indore-based SkyLane Dronetech said.
SkyLane Dronetech, a drone technology startup, announced on Thursday that it has used a drone to sprinkle fertiliser over 4,000 acres of agricultural land and is planning to apply the technology for healthcare delivery.
“With the use of a drone, we sprayed fertilisers on 4,000 acres of farm land spread throughout Khargone, Raisen, Shajapur, Rajgarh, Guna, and Gwalior districts for a Rs 12.5 lakh business,” said Prayas Saxena, founder and CEO of Indore-based SkyLane Dronetech.
Saxena, 34, said he and his friends founded Skylane Dronetech in December 2021, and the company now has a fleet of six drones.
He said that the company secured a Rs 2 crore credit from the central government’s Agriculture Infrastructure Fund at a cheaper interest rate.
According to Saxena, the corporation will buy ten more drones.
